Vikings complete interview with Brian Flores for defensive coordinator job


The Vikings have completed an interview with Steelers assistant Brian Flores for their open defensive coordinator position, the team announced Thursday.

The Vikings are looking for a replacement for Ed Donatell, who they fired last week.

Minnesota’s defense was one of the worst in franchise history, finishing the season ranked 28th in points allowed (25.1) and 31st in yards allowed (388.7).

The team also interviewed Seahawks assistant head coach for defense Sean Desai, Saints co-defensive coordinator and defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen and Vikings assistant head coach Mike Pettine.

Flores has just completed his first season as a senior defensive assistant and linebacker coach for the Steelers.

He also interviewed with the Cardinals for their head coaching position and for defensive coordinator positions with the Browns and Falcons.

Flores’ NFL career includes work in the Patriots personnel department and as an assistant. The Patriots won four Super Bowls during the Flores era with New England (XXXIX, XLIX, LI and LIII). He was also the head coach of the Dolphins from 2019-21.
